When I lent my services to a collegue who was working on a film about 12 years ago, I was introduced to the world of cnc. I remember watching this huge machining centre milling out a slab of mdf and turning it into a fantastic set of gears. I knew that it would have taken me hours to achieve the same thing with traditional power tools. I decided then that I would invest in a cnc router for my own business Oxenham Design. At that time I could turn on a computer, but even to check email seemed like a crazy set of operations. I persevered and learned every piece of relevant software I could get my hands on. I am now fortunate enough to be using Vectric's ASPIRE software, and Techno cnc routers, which has helped us to create some amazing projects, both in part, or in full. I thought that this blog would be a great place to share "behind the scenes" adventures with the software, materials and equipment we use, as well as the projects we build.

Dance monkey dance!

I finished up the flyguys today. I just had to add the faces and test the whole rig. It works remarkably well.
Simple always wins out in the end. I tried to get video, but my camera wouldn't save it. Talk about keeping things simple :(

So here are a couple of stills of the crazy dude in action.

I will hopefully upload a quick video tomorrow.
